+ - Multiple lost-phone seekers directed to same wrong addresses->

Submitted by

netbuzz writes "A mysterious GPS-tracking glitch has brought a parade of lost-phone seekers — and police officers — to the front door of a single beleaguered homeowner in Las Vegas. Each of the unexpected visitors – Sprint customers all — has arrived absolutely convinced that the man has their phone. Not so, police confirm. The same thing happened in New Orleans in 2011 and Sprint got sued. Says the Las Vegas man: "It's very difficult to say, 'I don't have your phone,' in any other way other than, 'I don't have your phone.'""
